Fracture imaging 

Overview:  The course combines an overview of the physics behind fracture initiation and propagation in brittle materials with practical tutorials using seismic and acoustic monitoring for the imaging of the fracture process. Passive and active monitoring methods will be examined, with examples at reservoir and laboratory rock sample scales. The course will cover the following points:

  • Fracture initiation and propagation
  • Fractures and seismicity
  • Passive imaging of fractures
  • Monitoring fracture interaction and coalescence
  • Seismic source parameters
  • Source mechanism: fault plane solution and moment tensor
  • Active surveys: deformation and fracturing imaging

The course will be delivered online and includes hands-on tutorials, handouts in electronic format and a temporary 7-day licence of InSite-Lab. This is a one (1) day course split over two (2) days; sessions will be 13:00  to 17:00 (GMT+1) on both days.
